Mom was an honest, kind, gentle and loving person who accepted you for who you were. She was very proud of her family and always looked forward to the next time we would all be together. Mom was our foundation. She never wanted credit or recognition, she only wanted to be loved and she was. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend. She was always there for every one of us. We love her and will sorely miss her.
Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, Feb. 19, 2005 at 10 am at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church with Father Gino Aloisio Celebrant.
